Story came just after a diver died at Stillwater Cove.
The chamber was not used for the diving victims Monday. They had the chamber on standby. The team was waiting for permission from physicians to admit the divers for the treatment, however one passed away, and the other diver did not show symptoms of decompression sickness. As a result, the chamber was not used.
It would have been the first time in nearly a year that this chamber would have been used again. It is one of the three in the whole state of California. There is one in San Diego, and one in Catalina. The chamber was temporarily not in use here because of insurance issues.
